View Full Version : Demo Trouble
I dont have tomb raider 3 anymore which made me so sad. So i found these demos available at stella's tomb raider walkthrough site. One of them is you play the whole level of India :D. The trouble is i downloaded a patch for it that would not stop the demo halfway through the level. Only the patch didnt work.. :confused:. Does anyone understand me? I downloaded the patch and played the demo but it still cuts off the game no more than halfway through the level :hea:. Please help me :(
Your talking about the patch that allows you to continue playing the entire India level?
Try this (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/cgi-bin/downloads2/dl.pl?ut_tr3_tr3indiapatch) version, and see what happens.
I tried that but the same thing happened. It keeps telling me this (it was hard to catch this on the screen lol):
Did you install the demo first, then run the patch? If not, there's no tomb3.exe to find.
shouldn't this be in the tech forum bit
Presumably toughraid3r37 has the problem sorted?
^No it still didn't work :(
I tried to install the demo myself, but the installer says it's trying to install Fraps 2.8.4?!?! I have 2.9.8 installed (registered).
Moving to Tech Support...
Is patch in the folder where Tomb Raider III demo is installed? If it isn't, that's the problem.
OK, I deleted some old setup.exe files that Fraps "helpfully" left on my drive, and now the install works. The game would not run on my Windows XP until I set Program Compatibility to Win98/ME. I played up to the first tiger and died. How far should I get?
BTW, using a save crystal locks the game - Lara just stands there with her braid waving, and pretty soon a demo run starts. The keyboard and mouse do nothing; I have to use CTL-ALT-DEL. Does anyone know why save isn't working?
^ Well, AFAIK demo was not supposed to have saving ability. You can run through one not-so-tough level w/o it anyway :)
so how did you get the whole level to work yet. I didn't :( ^^
